Waiting Game

We are still waiting for this little kiddo to do some growing. Last Friday he was 7 pounds 6.5 ounces. Today he's 7 pounds 8 ounces. That is just not enough! He's eating and eliminating fine, but still has jaundice. We just had blood drawn so the doctor can determine if it's the good or "bad" jaundice. The bad kind means there is some kind of physical defect with the kidneys or liver. I'm waiting by the phone for the results. She anticipates he's just got the good jaundice still from being a preemie and now that he has reached term, he should start gaining normally.
He's such a sweet little guy! He rarely cries, and if he does, it is very obvious what is wrong. Usually he cries when he's cold and wet. He also gets a bit frustrated if he waits too long to eat and has trouble latching on.
He sure loves his daddy! He's a very smiley guy and when he's awake, he likes to be snuggled and tickled. His sister loves to read to him and he doesn't seem to mind the Barbie books yet. She wishes she could hold him more, but we have to wait until he's a little more healthy.

Pretty soon they'll be playing Barbies together!
